    Kahr PM9

    Any body have the Kahr PM9 for their primary carry weapon? Would really appreciate any and all responses to shootability, dependability and carry rigs....Especially if any carry in the pocket. Thanks!

    I have one, its not my everyday carry but i do carry it as a primary. Mine has been perfect. I use a destantis nemesis holster.

    It has a pretty decent kick when using super hot ammo, but i find it easy to shoot and fast back on target.

    Sig, How is the weight and comfort in the Nemisis? I carry a P3AT in one and of course you forget it's there. The XD9 is my car and home gun, but just looking for more go any place, any outfit carry power. Prefer pocket carry. My j frame is a little fat to me.

    During the summer, I EDC my Kahr PM9. I have 2 holsters for it, a tuckable IWB & a pocket holster.

    I can pocket carry it in jeans, but it is snug. It's better to pocket carry in cargo pants. Both holsters, for the time being, are UBG holsters (Who I highly recommend).

    As far as shootability, unless I pocket carry, I carry it with the extended mag (For a full grip). I've never had ANY problems with the gun, including during break-in. All in all, I am VERY happy with it.

    It has a very good trigger (For a DAO), is light, small, & accurate.

    The Nemesis stinks for the PM series. It may be cheap, but it covers way too much of the tiny grip, and it fits too tight, unless you cut out the stitch thet put in the top.

    pocketholsters.com for Kahr is what I went with and it works well, but most of the $50 and up pocket holsters are perfectly good. I wish DeSantis had put some effort into the Nemesis for the PM series, but I suspect that they just found an existing model that was "close enough", stitched the top for a MK series, and labeled it for MK/PM series.

    I carry in most slacks and cargo pockets with the extended +1 mag, and the pocketholster.com, and save the flush fit mag for tight pockets.

    I also have a Crossbreed IWB for the PM, and it is excellent.

    I have a PM40, not PM9.

    I have a PM9 with about 450 rounds through it, and so far it has been perfect. Accuracy on this little gun is as good as many larger ones. I have done 150 rounds at a time without too much problem although my wrist gets pretty tired. That's still 3 times more than I can do with my 642. I carry it in a Crossbreed Supertuck, or a Robert Mika pocket holster.

    I have close to 1000 round through my PM9 without any problems at all.

    I use a Crossbreed Supertuck IWB, DeSantis OWB, and Mika Pocket Holster for carry, depending upon dress.

    I find no problems with the nemesis, and i can get a full grip on it. You forget its there, and it looks like a pack of ciggs in your pocket if it does print.

    I love my PM9 even after over 600 rounds! No problems at all and fits in my pockets easily. My dad liked it so much that he bought a PM9 two days ago as well. He has 100 rounds through his now trouble free and we intend to break it in at the range fully tomorrow. During the heat of summer, the PM9 is usually all I carry on my person, but I try to keep my XD40 or now my CZ75 in my glove box.

    I've had my PM9 for as long as they have been out (how long is that? 3-4 years?)
    I've never had an issue with it of any kind. Its a great little rocket.
    I will say it doesnt make a great first gun, its a handfull.

    I've a Kahr MK9 Elite. Does anyone else here have one or shot one. It will be a backup CCW eventually. I've only shot it to verify operation and it worked perfectly. The only problem I have with it is it's awful trigger. It's like there is an antique spring actuating the trigger. Any opinions or is this normal?

    PM9

    I have one and have put approx. 425 rounds through it. Both FMJ's and HP's ... it works! Still a tad heavy for pocket carry for me so am using a SmartCarry during summer months. Looking into a t-shirt style holster. Any suggestions on one that won't sag or pull on your neck??
